Dirty water: Chautala residents lock waterworks, to climb tank


Sirsa: Former deputy prime minister Devi Lal’s native village, Chautala, located on the Rajasthan border in Haryana’s Sirsa district, is struggling for clean drinking water. Villagers, angered by continuous supply of dirty water, protested on Sunday by locking the village’s waterworks and warned that if officials do not come to the village to hear their problem, they will protest by climbing atop the local water taken on Monday.
Villagers said drinking water supply in the village had been continuously mixed with drainage water, about which all employees and officials of the water supply department were made aware of, but no permanent solution had been reached by the district administration.
They said the main reason for this was that the supply pipeline in the village was old and had been damaged from many place, due to which drain water would mix in the drinking water supply. Earlier, on Satrday, angry villagers on Sunday gheraoed the waterworks under the banner of All India Kisan Sabha and started an indefinite protest. At noon, the junior engineer of the department reached Dabwali. Negotiations with the engineer lasted for an 1 hour, but he did not give a satisfactory reply.
